The prostate gland role is in production of special fluid in the man’s body. This fluid becomes part of the semen, which is ejaculated during sexual activity.
The size of the prostate gland is usually compared with the size of a walnut. It is located under the bladder and in front of the rectum. Physiologically it wraps around the urethra and is closely connected with many urination and sexual health problems.
The prostate gland common problems are prostatitis, enlargement or benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostate cancer.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia is considered being aging-related enlargement or growth of the prostate gland. This process is absolutely natural and can remain symptomless in some men. Others can experience very unpleasant symptoms of enlargement. The benign prostatic hyperplasia symptoms are frequent, often painful urination, urinating at night, sudden urge to urinate, pain in back or in low area of abdomen. Though enlargement of prostate can cause no problems in some men, this condition is very common and affects about ¾ of all men older than 60-65 years of age.
The cause of prostate enlargement is unknown, but it is thought to be associated with hormonal changes as a man gets more mature.
The balance of hormones in the man’s body changes as he grows older and this may cause the prostate gland to grow.
Men who notice any problems or changes in usual pattern of urination, sudden back pain or any discomfort should see their doctors.
Diagnosing benign prostate enlargement involves physical exam of a patient and several different tests: urine test, blood test, hormonal balance tests carried at a hospital. Some tests are done to exclude the risk of other prostate problems like prostatitis and prostate cancer.
Some measures including reduction in the liquid consumption, avoidance of coffee, alcohol, and smoking can help control the symptoms.
Usually doctors recommend medication therapy. It can help reduce the size of the prostate gland and relax the muscles of the bladder.
In very serious cases of prostate growth when man experiences severe symptoms, the part of the prostate gland can be surgically removed.
If the symptoms are troublesome a man should consult his doctor about using special medications. Medications to reduce the size of the prostate gland and relax the muscles of the bladder are suggested for men with moderate to severe symptoms of enlarged prostate.
Cialis is one of the alternatives which a doctor can suggest for use in a man with prostate enlargement. This medicine is used orally in the dose of 5 mg each day of the treatment as long as directed by a doctor.
The symptoms of enlarged prostate are usually relieved within one or two weeks after the treatment has started. Beside the action of reducing the symptoms of prostate, Cialis improves erectile function in men. Cialis is well-known medicine for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
So, if a person has two problems at the same time, he can benefit from using Cialis for both conditions.
